Very often I have and have had for years a very uncomfortable feeling in my right side just below my ribs. It stays sore most of the time and feels like there is a pin cushion located in there that keeps sticking in my gut. I have also been diagnosed in the past with a duodenal ulcer back in 1992. Have had an upper G.I. recently that didn't show up anything either. Also had an ultrasound run to check my gallbladder because of so much nausea. Do you have any idea what might be wrong with me? I get so sick so suddenly sometimes that I can hardly stay up on my feet. Puzzled?
the tpye of symptom that you describe is common. Unfortunately, we often do not make a specific diagnosis. Diseases of the stomach, small intestine and gastric emptying should be excluded. An upper Gi series with small intestine x-ray as well as a gastric emptying study should be considered in view of the nausea of which you complain.
